Call SERVPRO When Spring Cleaning Becomes Something More

3/29/2021 (Permalink)

With warmer weather finally upon us, many cape codders are taking this opportunity to start their spring cleaning. However, homeowners may often find larger household issues when clearing clutter. Rodent infestations, mold, puffback soot and other household headaches may just be looming around the corner. If spring cleaning becomes a home restoration nightmare, trying to tackle the situation alone may just make it worse. Here’s some examples of how some common household issues should be left to the professionals:

  • Puffbacks: puffback-related soot damage will deteriorate objects and structure in your home, sometimes past the point of restoration. Plates and fine China will discolor, paint can be left permanently stained and electronic appliances can be irreversibly damaged. If not tested correctly by a professional, parts of your home or business that you wouldn’t expect to be damaged could deteriorate before your eyes. Furthermore, through use of patented cleaners and chemical sponges, SERVPRO removes puff back damage thoroughly and permanently.
  • Rodent Infestations: SERVPRO of Mid-Outer Cape Cod is trained to safely remove animal related biohazards and dispose of them properly in accordance with OSHA and health regulations. Equipped with the necessary safety apparatus and cleaning products, we can help transform these unhealthy environments back into clean, safe homes and offices. Also, anytime animals stow away in your home, it’s more than likely that your insulation needs to be replaced. Trust SERVPRO to clean or replace your insulation fast, easily, affordably and efficiently.
  • Mold: Remediation Makes Sure That Mold STAYS Gone: Removing mold stains will only get rid of its appearance for a brief amount of time. The mold spots will come back larger and more toxic than before. By calling a restoration company, you’ll be saving time and money that could’ve been wasted on a more severe mold problem down the line
